I was afraid to fly.
He made me soar.
After years of climbing the ladder of success in the music industry, I finally had everything I could want. Yet I still found myself wandering through life alone.
Captain Evan Roth was the one man I never saw coming.
Tall, dark, mysterious… Straight.
We were both damaged beyond repair and searching for something so elusive we weren’t sure it even existed.
But, when two broken souls collide in midair, falling is a given.
I just never expected to crave the spiral down.
The Spiral Down is the heartfelt story of two men who find each other when least expected and has to fight their demons in order to have their chance at happily ever after. This book is both lighthearted and high on emotions and tells the story of a man who does not like labels and a man who wants and needs it.
Evan and Henry are different as day and night. One is a brooder and the other a ray of sunshine. Henry is the successful pop singer who finds that he is deeply attracted to the ‘straight’ pilot Evan. Henry believes that only a straight man turned gay could be his happily ever after.He seeks them and that is the drug of his choice.Evan loathes labels and is weary of them. Both of them are so deeply affected by their past that their present and their choices are greatly shaped by it. I really loved the way their bond was built in the story. They both had a wonderful sexual chemistry and that aided in developing their bond and helped them open up to each other. They both had numerous issues to overcome too. Their demons had left them scared of opening up to the possibility of being with each other, but in the end they both came through. What I loved the most is the amount of love they had for each other and the depth of their feelings, it was really heart warming to read about it.
The Spiral Down is an amazing foray into M/ M Romance genre by the author. The book is high on emotions and talks about the love story of two men which is believable, realistic and heartwarming. Evan and Henry will take you on a ride which is beautiful, emotional, unforgettable and will leave you wanting for more.
